Totally unmarked save for some cairns. Experienced hikers only has there’s some moderate bouldering you need to do. We used our GPS to get back as there’s nothing to follow about 3 miles in. At one point near the end it’s really confusing whether you should summit a ridge line or head into the valley (mostly because the summit is sketch) — you should summit though — the valley adds another 40 min. Stay high once you get around the first ridge line. Wear pants. There isn’t much water either.
